In today’s society, the need to promote a strong body and mind are more important than ever. Problems such as alcohol, tobacco and drug abuse, sexually transmitted disease, obesity and physical inactivity diminish the quality and longevity of life. Research has proven the correlation between an active body and academic success. The Health and Physical Education Department of the Irvington Public Schools provides a motivating and enriching K-12 program that meets the physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of our students. The curriculum is designed to support the other core subjects while also providing our students the necessary skills to improve and maintain their health and wellness for a lifetime.
The physical education department believes its mission is to expose all students to the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle and the involvement of physical activities they can participate in for a lifetime.
